I never had a Turbo so was not familiar with the whine and blow off valve. Must say the sound is very different from my LS1.

My intercooler is scheduled to arrive on Thursday and I noticed I have a exhaust leak where I cut the old mufflers off and attached the STS pipe. Will get that all fixed and try to get more pictures and a video next weekend.

What do you guys want to see in a vid? Mostly the sound from the outside or from the inside of the car? Let me know what would help.
What do your intake air temps look like without the intercooler?

Z, thanks for sharing this information and giving the V6 crowd some hope finally. I'd love to hear some sound video inside and outside of the cabin, some drive-bys and also some pictures of the intercooler install once that is done. I'm very curious about how that will look with the stock front fascia.

Obviously, we would all love to see the dyno results and would love to see some video of it ON the dyno so we can hear the sound at WOT. Also, we'd love to see some 1/4 mile time slips if there is a drag strip close to you.

Thanks again for all the information.

Congrats - force induction for the V6 was becoming something of the wholly grail. Sounds like we may have our moon landing - So to speak.

scrming - notice the track on Oahu is "defunct" and the three others are on different islands (Maui, Big Island-Hawaii, and Kauai). I could take up a collection to ship the car to another island.....just a thought.

Don't have anything to test intake temperature. When I get the car dyno'd, i'll see what they can do. So far I drove it about 5 miles on the test run and when I got back, I could touch the intake but it was hot. I did get ceramic coating as well.

Plan to get Dyno'd at Nakaz Racing. He's built a bunch of FI Mustangs, 1000+ HP. What kind of HP are you expecting to put out with your set-up? If/when I ever get my 5th Gen Z-28, then I going for serious HP.

I'm pretty sure 91 would be fine. If not, the whole west/Midwest would be screwed because that's all we have. Lol
